Cisco today announced the completion of a new mobile network for Reliance Communications that will cover 100,000 square kilometers -- the largest 3G deployment in India. With this new network, Reliance customers will be able to experience new mobile services such as high-quality video telephony and high-speed mobile data, along with enhanced music downloads, instant messaging and online gaming.
The deployment also paves the way for Reliance’s implementation of the recently announced Cisco® MOVE (Monetization, Optimization, Videoscape Experience) framework. Cisco’s MOVE empowers mobile operators like Reliance to better manage, enhance and take financial advantage of the rapidly growing volume of mobile data traffic.
